5 Minutes With... Jade @ Byron Bath Organics

Posted on 24 July 2017

Coming across a beautiful product to share with our customers is always a pleasure and we love the ethos behind the Byron Bath Organics beauty products. Our gifts are designed to create a 'day spa at home' and you can't go past the luxurious quality of these delicious beauty gifts.
...
So, we sat down with Jade (mother extraordinaire and maker of beautiful things) to chat about how she got it all started and what's been her inspiration along the way.

Tell us how you started your business and why?

A personal love of bath and organic beauty rituals inspired me to come up with this range. I used to open tea bags and put the contents in my bath along with essential oils over 10 years ago, but I didn’t develop the idea into a hobby and business until after the birth of my (now toddler) twins. I had more time to spend on the idea while I was at home and wanting some muscle and relaxation relief at nights after the busy days all mums have.

How did you come up with your packaging, design and/or ingredients?

The product: I bought a huge variety of botanicals and ingredients and played around in the formulation process, and tested on friends (humans not animals he he) got feedback and kept going until I was happy with the range. This was a slow process over a year before launching last December.

Packaging: I created some of the design ideas myself while also working along side a new local graphic designer and mum who was fantastic to work with and really interpreted my ideas well, while also adding some amazing designs to the packaging too.

What have you learnt about your business along the way?

Wow... many small interesting lessons - from making your product look perfect on the shelves of shops, to barcode and graphic design facts that I never knew existed. It's all a very interesting process after coming from a background in events in the fashion and music industries.

What’s special/unique about your product?

We use all natural ingredients and no synthetic fragrance, colours or preservatives in our product. We use a large quantity of dried botanicals in our bath soaks and they come in a rather large 450 gram well-priced pouch. Our scrubs are unique in adding organic green tea and lavender flowers. We are also a local business and we hand make each small batch ourselves.

What’s new for your business over the next 12 months?

We are working on our Baby/children’s relaxing, skin soothing bath soak range along with a beautiful body wash and lip balm, to be launched soon.

Where’s your favourite place in Byron Bay?

Wategoes Beach hence the use of the famous Pandanus Palm that features along the nature strip of the beach there. It is always so special there for me since my childhood, growing up in Byron Bay.

Sum up your product in five words…

Organic, indulgent, relaxing, healthy, beauty.
